I love your figure skating headband. I bought one a year ago because I got two concussions months prior (it wasn’t by doing anything cool, I promise lol)
An adult figure skater advised me to get one and so I did. I’m very happy with the product because it's a way better alternative than wearing a helmet while being a figure skater =)
It actually prevented me from getting a third concussion when I flew on the ice and landed on my side. My head actually bounced on the ice. Although my ribs and knees were bruised, my head was fine.
We talked a few years ago about business after I made a purchase on your site. Your hats have been amazing for my brother, who has epilepsy. They allow him to be protected without the embarrassment of always having to wear a epileptic helmet. Do you know when you'll have the Crasche " X 38 " cycling cap for sale online? Any chance of a Crasche baseball hat in the future? Hope all is well with business, thanks again for selling this product.
Unfortunately my daughter has been experiencing a higher amount of drop seizures since we spoke resulting in a few trips to emergency one in particular where she split the back of her head open. She is doing fine now we have received the two new caps which are really great the size is perfect and she has had so many comments how great they look. She really loves the caps and seems much happier. I also feel she is not so self conscious when in public and I have to tell you that although she was wearing a type of helmet before this is far more protective.
Thank you for your prompt handling of my order which was placed on Sunday and arrived today.
I was particularly impressed by your personal attention and phone call on Sunday only minutes after the web order was placed.
It is a pleasure to deal with a company that has such attention to detail.
And yes the hats are both brilliant in design and comfortable to wear.
Good Afternoon- I am checking in to see if you have any retailers for your hats and bands? I have a small business in which we carry products for figure skaters. I am a figure skating coach, but more importantly I am an RN and a mom with a child that suffered a moderate concussion.
Thank you again for providing this product. I have purchased two of your hats for my daughter after she had several concussions; she easily concusses at this point with even small taps! Now I am purchasing one for my elderly father who has had several tumbles and has also hit his head. Thank goodness it was a small hit! Now we are going to use the hat!!!
I’d like to say thank you for saving my brother’s life. He is a six foot three man who suffers from epileptic seizures that come on with no warning. He had a seizure and fell head first into a table. Luckily, he had his Crasche helmet on and was completely fine.
We’ve all been there at some point in our action sport lives…taken a good spill and should have been wearing a helmet. I’ve lost count, probably from memory loss, of the number of times this has happened to me.

My name is Fran and my husband and son bought me the Crasche headband to protect me while I skate. I am an older skater- just started after I retired and I love it. I wear a helmet because I am not taking the risk of injuring myself in a fall. I did fall when I first skated and knocked myself out for 9 minutes. Scary stuff. I was toying with the idea of getting a halo but my husband didn’t think they were safe enough. He found your product instead.
My son's hat arrived today and it's fantastic! I got him the athletic mesh in black. I'm wondering if I can order the white one without the inserts so we have two color options? And are black and white the ONLY options for that hat? I'd love it in grey if that were at all possible.
He loves the hat!!...wears it since he opened the pkg!! Thank you! May be ordering more soon! My son wants one...and my niece who plays sports in NJ needs one! Thanks so much!
Alice loves her helmet!
I showed the hat that I purchased from you to my epileptologist at UMASS Memorial in Worcester MA. She has been a professor there for nearly 20 years. I go there to have my VNS implant maintained. She says that my seizures are some of the most dramatic she has seen in 20 years. She was impressed with it and took the information for your product to recommend to her patients, she is a specialist. I showed her your website and she stored it in the College Campus computer under helmets.
I bought a navy winter knit a couple of days ago and it just came in the mail not even ten minutes ago. I am just thrilled. It is comfortable, warm, and I really don't think anyone will be able to tell unless they knock on it or I tell them. The protective inserts cover my entire head from front to back. I already feel safer. Thank you, Crasche!
Being visually impaired, Adam runs into things and trips over everything causing him to fall and hit his head all the time. Just received his Crasche hat yesterday and it has already helped during a fall at school today. Thanks for a great product!
I just wanted to thank you for your product line. As a bald guy I need a little extra protection for the top of my head for incidental bumps and scrapes while I am working as a stagehand on Broadway. Your hats are perfect! When I started wearing it on the job no one even knew it had the inserts in it.
My husband just received his summer Crasche hat. We are very impressed. He got a concussion from a hit on top of his head, this hat is perfect to protect the top of his head. He has been wearing a hard hat while waiting for this hat to arrive. The hard hat is very clumsy and not very comfortable. This hat seems perfect. We will be ordering a winter one. Hopefully, you will be selling them in Canada soon. Thank you for a comfortable solution to our problem!
Your hats are FANTASTIC for the special needs community. The caps have some weight and offer protection. A person who might not have worn a helmet before, will wear the cap because they "are cool" and stylish. Your product can be a true life saver and G-d send to children with autism...and of course, their parents, around the world. I will make sure I get the word out in my area so that people know this is available.
I bought a Crasche Hat for my son at Christmas. He is 27 years old and I was afraid he would think it was silly. He loves it! He says it looks nice and it feel good. He rides a motorcycle without a helmet and this was better than nothing. I called and spoke to Bob at your company and he was helpful and nice. Thanks for a great product and great customer support!
I just wanted to thank you for the on time delivery of the police hat for my son. I had waited till it was so late to order but it still arrived on the 24th. He has been wearing it on patrol and will for ski patrol as well. I own a business so I know that I like to hear that someone was happy. Kudos to you.
Just ordered another one for this year. Just very comfortable teaching skiing in it. When you spend a great deal of time walking around with students before they are ready for the chairlift and yet enough protection in case you get knocked over, etc. Also, I actually wore it the second half (when it got cold) of my touch football season. Was really perfect for that. Last year I also used it as protection on winter hikes below the treeline. Having had a few concussions I just always wear some type of protection but do not always need the level provided by a helmet.
"We received my daughters helmet today and I am beyond impressed. It is so much nicer than your photos show. She has Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (a rare and severe form of Epilepsy) and it has been a battle for years to get her to wear any sort of helmet to protect her head. We received the hat this afternoon and she hasn't taken it off since! She absolutely loves it! It is difficult to get a teenage girl to wear anything that makes her feel different and you guys have done something that no one has been able to do in a long time.... make her feel "normal"!
"I am attaching photos of my son, Mario Ulizzi, wearing your crasche athletic helmet. We are so grateful that we have found your product for him. He is a 14 year old boy who is an avid soccer player and if it wasn't for your headgear, after his second surgery he would not be able to play the sport that he loves. After undergoing very invasive surgery to remove an orbital bone tumor, we were unsure if we could find protection to protect his head from the craniotomy that the doctors had to perform. After being displeased with what was offered to us by specialists, I began my own search.
"Thank you for designing and making your excellent product at such a good price. I am a pediatric neurologist and help children with autism (not looking where they are going at times) and epilepsy (falls) and Chiari (bad if they get concussions).
This child had concussions so often due to a combination of not looking where he is going, constant motion, poor balance, and a big head - that he was having repeated vomiting with weight loss. Since he bought the Crasche hat, he has not had a concussion. He further is willing to keep it on and it does not make him look "special."
"Hi, I got the hat last night. It's awesome! Thank you so much. If I may make one suggestion, you should have more customization available...like with different fabrics and patterns. I see that you have a special needs alert on your website. I have severe, intractable epilepsy and am permanently disabled. I'd be more than happy and willing to be a spokesman and represent it for the great device it is. I've been forced to wear a helmet now just about 24 hours a day (except when sleeping) and THIS HAT is super comfy and my NEW CHOICE!"

"Feel free to let US Lacrosse know that my daughter got a concussion when her head hit another players eye protection. The girl she collided with was OK (I suspect because the eyewear padding provided her with some safety), while my daughter got the concussion. Does that mean US Lacrosse thinks the eyewear is unsafe to other players? Had she been wearing the Middie, she would have had no issue and... neither would the other player. Lastly, I thought they had deemed the other design you had as safe as previously tested. Why is it no longer safe?"
"Just received my Crashe Hat and I have to say it is a great solution. I teach skiing on the weekends and have been looking for head protection that was not as warm and easier to wear than a helmet while teaching. Especially while on lower level lessons. First test was this past weekend and it was great. I don't need a full helmet for this solution, or while i am judging freestyle events so this works great! Let me know if you need an advocate or rep on snow in NH! Have a great day..."
"We just opened up the package and I have to say that we're both floored by how great of an idea this is. My grandfather had a pretty serious fall last year and is now cautious about doing just about everything so we're hoping that this in his stocking will change all of that. We also have two young daughters who are constantly in need of some extra protection so I think that it goes without saying that you've got some loyal customers now.
"A great product. My son loves it and wears it when skating now. Great peace of mind for me and he feels safer now too. Can't wait for the baseball hat style."
- Beth Schweinefuss
"Wow, I've been told I should always be wearing a helmet, even around the house. This is perfect! :) "
- David Choi
"These hats are an excellent way to protect oneself and kids when doing outside activities! It is also very comfortable and stylish!"
- Moe Av
"Head gear is so important! If your kids (or you) won't wear a traditional helmet, please consider these!"
- Lisa Reed Mezik
"Good idea for anyone. Especially if you're like me and spend more time falling than riding on the slopes!:)"
- Susanna Breslaoukhov
"Very cool idea, good-looking, and the prices are reasonable."
